Govt 2301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Iwanek is one of the best teachers I've ever had. Knowledgeable about the subject and ties course material to real world situations. Be prepared for in-class discussions everyday. Great professor if you talk what she says with a grain of salt. Very liberally biased.

GOVT-2304-P01 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Best professor i have ever had, she took a student who had no interest in this subject what so ever to someone who can actually maintain a political conversation in a educated way. If you want a teacher who really cares about her students and the topic that she teaches she is the one to take.

Great professor if you do not just want to be lectured to. Provides good, thought provoking class times. Lots of writing, however. Greatly enjoyed her class.

2301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Professor Iwanek is now my favorite professor, and reminds me of what college is supposed to be like-challenging. If you are looking for a blow off government class, do not take her, because she teaches for her students to actually learn and take away something from the class. Be prepared to critically think on a daily basis if you want an A.

GOVT 2303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She was a terrible professor, I withdrew from the class and thats been my only withdraw in all of my college career because she simply does not teach. unless you want to basically explain HER assignments to yourself through blackboard I recommend you take a professor who teaches.Be prepared for 10+ page papers which she wont really explain to you.

GOVT 2304 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Prof Iwanek is amazing & definitely has a passion for Model UN, HOWEVER, if you don't plan on doing Model UN, don't make it on the team, or are already involved in other extracurricular, I would not advise taking this class. Quizzes over the textbook but no lecture on it,extremely long assignments with little explanation &little real PoliSci study.

GOVT2304 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Teaching style involves questioning rather than preaching (thank God). Encourages independent research. Not an overly hard/easy grader, but pushes for creative(like, different) answers. Likes to give students compliments (too many). Has a small cult of acolytes who feels she changed their lives. Likes to play devil's advocate in discussions.

Took the Political Science class. The course came with a FREE TRIP to D.C....A FREE F-ING TRIP!!! Anywho. Course work instructions/due dates are clearly listed online. Not an especially hard grader and appreciates quirky answers. Oh, on that free trip, the class offers a program that's essentially a competition. Good/easy resume material.

I have no interest in Government whatsoever. Prf Iwanek got me thinking about how to be an active citizen and got me caring about things I wouldn't have before I took her class. The tests are super hard, but I would say the main grade is participation. Very hands on, and entertaining class. Plus she's a total babe. Highly recommended.
